  1. Will there be any demo provided in the workshop about how to place bracket orders automatically. I do have a strategy which is working good with intraday bracket orders.

  2. Which one is good Algo Trading or Investing. Im not sure whether i should do investing or Algo Trading?

    1. Investing is a season to benefit only from upmove (timeframe and holding period is typically higher) whereas Algo trading/System based trading is to benefit from both the side of moves (timeframe and holding period is typically lower to medium). It is upto a trader to decide whether to do investing or algo trading based upon their risk profile and the underlying passion.

  3. Hi Rajandran
    It is great that you are organizing this Automated Trading System Workshop in Bangalore and Delhi.
    Will it be held in Mumbai anytime soon ?

      1. Hello

        Have you finalized a date for the Automated Trading system workshop in Chennai ? Would be interested to attend. Please notify me once you have scheduled.


  4. I want to go under Training for the Zerodha Pi script writing to use it for my personal trading

    1. Amibroker AFL Programming is much efficient than tradescript. Tradescript is good for simple scanners and simple strategies which doesnt cover most of the
      basic traders requirement in most of the cases.

  5. Hi Rajandran , i wanted to attend this workshop , however would request you to please reduce the price and make it affordable so that maximum number of people can join the same . At the moment it seems even more costly than a 5 days PMP workshop 🙂

    1. Anyways This is not a PMP workshop! It is much more sensitive and suits serious traders and professionals who want to automate their trading ideas.

  6. i am interested in learning about ami broker and its scanner options. is this workshop right for me?

    1. Yes it will be covered. However more focus is provided on How to automate your trading strategies using Amibroker.
      And all the participants will receive access to 40+ hours of Recorded Webinars on Amibroker Basics, AFL Programming and Advanced AFL Programming
      which satisfies most of your requirement.
